Grandmother's Closet

A Wales Millennium Centre and Luke Hereford Production

23 – 26 February 2023


An autobiographical musical adventure that promises mischief and mashups, dresses and divas, and a whole lot of heart.

“I’m not just your Nan. I’m your friend too.”

Growing up in a close-knit south Wales community, Luke Hereford relied on his Nan as a personal cheerleader to guide him through his queer childhood.

On his first tentative steps down the yellow brick road Luke takes on Broadway, experiences his very first pride event and finds his perfect shade of lipstick – all to the tune of Madonna, Kylie, Kate Bush and all of his favourite pop divas.

“a lavish high-camp cabaret”



Join Luke as he stumbles along his journey of queer self-discovery through the glamorous spirit of his Nan, capturing their brightest memories – before they start to fade forever.

One year on from its premiere, Grandmother's Closet returns to Cardiff – somehow looking and sounding even more fabulous after an award-winning run in Edinburgh.
